Whether you've got a hankering for some meat or just deserve a little cheat day goodness, there's nothing like a big juicy burger. Luckily for you, we've handpicked the finest around. From burgers themed after your favourite TV show to heaving patties sandwiched between a glazed doughnut, here's our top 5 burgers in Cardiff.
The Breaking Bad One: Got Beef
Boasting a huge menu of hand-pressed Welsh black cattle burgers, this Whitchurch Road bolthole is a no-brainer when it comes to burgers in Cardiff. There may be gluten-free, veggie and vegan options, but our money’s on the Heisenburger (£8). A meaty mix of beef patty, smoked streaky bacon and blue cheese smothered in drunken blue onions… this is the danger.
The Vegan One: Greazy Vegan
From Southern-fried ‘chickun’ to crispy ‘vacon’ and even plant-based kebabs, Greazy Vegan does mock-meat at its finest. Get your hands on vegan junk food staples The Big Moc (£8) which pairs two patties with cheese, lettuce, pickles and Big Moc sauce that tastes just like the real thing. Wash it all down with an Oreo or Biscoff milkshake for major food porn points.
The Breakfast One: The Grazing Shed
Move over McMuffin, there's a new kid in town. For those mornings when toast just won't cut it, The Grazing Shed has got the goods. The award-winning Bore Da (£4) stacks Welsh beef, smoky bacon, black pudding and an egg fried to perfection. It's not always around though, so you'll want to keep an eye out for this mouthwatering breakfast burger.
The Krispy Kreme One: The Bagel and Burger Kitchen
What happens when sweet meets savoury? It’s time to find out. The Bagel and Burger Kitchen splits its menu into gourmet burgers, bagels and BB specials like this dreamy Krispy Kreme Burger (£6.95). Sandwiched between an original glazed doughnut, you’ll find a beef patty (or spicy bean burger for you veggies) loaded with American cheese and homemade relish. Sweet.
The DIY One: Time & Beef
When it comes to building things ourselves, we usually steer clear of any sort of flat-pack situation. But Time & Beef is taking DIY to a whole new level. Brioche or seeded bun? Breaded chicken or chickpea and sweet potato burger? Topped with pulled pork? Fried eggs? Grilled chilli? It’s all up to you. Don’t forget to top with cheese, slather in sauce and name your creation.
